Fuse Chicken GRAVITY TOUCH Wireless Charger: Features
The Fuse Chicken GRAVITY TOUCH Wireless Charger is an elegant charging base made with sustainable bamboo and high-strength aluminum. The bamboo surface is smooth and has the Fuse logo engraved in it. The edges of the charger are chamfered, or angled at 45 degrees, for an elegant look and feel. This is a wireless charger you want on your desk or nightstand. It looks fabulous with just about any decor.
Sizewise, it's pretty similar to the iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone X, and iPhone XS. It measures 3.94-by-6.3-by-0.79 inches. This makes it easy to plop your phone down upon it; you don't have to guess where to place your phone to be sure it's lined up properly with the charging element. That said, I tried placing it at different angles, and that worked just fine too. A one-meter long USB Type-A charging cable is included, and it is built into the charger. You'll need to provide your own wall charger because none is included. A blue light glows when the charger is actively charging. I tested the charger with my iPhone in various cases, and it worked fine even with the thicker cases.
The Fuse Chicken GRAVITY TOUCH Wireless Charger offers 10W wireless fast charging, though in my experience it was still slower than plugging the iPhone into a wall charger via its Lightning port. Apple devices currently can only use 7.5W anyway. You can use the Fuse Chicken Gravity Touch Wireless Charger with any iPhone model from the iPhone 8 to the current models. You can also use it with any Qi-enabled smartphone or device.
If you prefer a wireless charger that stands up, Fuse Chicken also makes GRAVITY LIFT Wireless Charger. Or, go truly wireless with Fuse Chicken's Universal All-in-One Travel Charger, which also comes with travel adapters and charges your USB Type-A and USB Type-C devices.
Fuse Chicken GRAVITY TOUCH Wireless Charger: What I like
It's just plain beautiful. There are certainly cheaper wireless chargers out there that function just as well, but this one is much better looking. The chamfered aluminum edges complement the sustainable bamboo top portion. I can see this one going with just about any decor from clean and modern to warm and rustic. I like that the size and shape are so similar to the iPhone, making it easy to place your phone correctly for optimal charging.
Fuse Chicken GRAVITY TOUCH Wireless Charger: What I don't like
It's hard to make a case for "needing" a wireless charger when plugging into a wall charger is faster. Though this is an industry-standard 10W charger, it doesn't charge up an iPhone particularly fast as it's limited to 7.5W when charging an iPhone. That said, it is nice having one on your nightstand so you can plop it down before bed, avoiding fumbling in the dark with the Lightning port.

Fuse Chicken GRAVITY TOUCH Wireless Charger: Bottom line
A wireless charger may not be the fastest way to charge up your iPhone, but it can certainly be the most beautiful. Rather than having a loose cable hanging out on your desk or nightstand, you can have this sleek sliver of metal and bamboo. Top off your iPhone while working, or let it charge overnight. The Fuse Chicken GRAVITY TOUCH Wireless Charger is a great-looking way to charge your iPhone.
